Technology in Music

Technology in Music

Music has developed in many forms throughout the natural course of history but there are two main factors, which I think contribute to the development of music significantly. These two factors are the contributions of human culture and the never-ending development of technology. The digital technology that is used in music production has revolutionised the way that music is created. It has also changed the way we consume music and the evolution of music or…

I organised puppy milk, and the loan of a puppy cage and rang the vet to ask if we could take him straight through and then waited for Clive’s arrival. As soon as I…

Greater Littleport & District NSS

Rev’d Nick Brown Senior Minister at Greater Littleport and District NSS presents a look at our Christian Spiritualism by the NSS Principle Minister.

Or, “He (they) that believeth on me, the works that…

One of the nicest walks in this area is Chettisham meadows and is best accessed from Little Downham rather than the A10 entrance. This is the time when we should start to leave food out for the birds. Although Autumn is a good time for natural food, they need to know where food can be found in the…
